Call of Duty: Warzone Jan. 13 Update Patch Notes

Call of Duty: Warzone has just received an update to Battle Royale on January 13th. The update includes changes to various weapons such as the DMR and Type 63 alongside a few other balance changes. The infinite stim glitch has also been finally fixed, which was annoying quite a lot of players as it had the ability to break the game at certain instances.

Warzone is a free-to-play Battle Royale based on the immensely popular Call of Duty franchise. The game is extremely fast-paced and is known for its huge 150+ player lobbies. The Developers have promised regular updates, and the Jan. 13 Update for Call of Duty: Warzone seems to be an addition to those aforementioned promises.

Warzone Jan. 13 Patch Notes

Perhaps the weapon that was complained about the most was the DMR-14. Due to its high bullet penetration and high damage, the gun felt over-powered in many scenarios. Thankfully, the gun has now been nerfed to reasonable levels. The Gallantry MAC-10 was also suffering from nerfed stats due to a bug, which was also fixed.
